Watch These 2 Smarty Pants Win the National Spelling Bee

By Kenrya Rankin May 27, 2016

Every year, nearly 300 kids head to Washington, D.C., for the Scripps National Spelling Bee, where they compete to be the last person spelling in the three-day event. This year’s contestants range from 6 to 15 years old, and they come from all over the nation to represent their schools.

This year, the final honors went to co-champions Nihar Saireddy Janga, 11, and Jairam Hathwar, 13. The boys, who hail from Texas and New York, respectively, are the third duo in a row to share the win. Both boys are Indian-American. Watch them spell "Feldenkrais" and "gesellschaft"—courtesty of The Washington Post—then go off.
